Dita Von Teese's "worst nightmare" would be a man who didn't share her taste in interior design.

The burlesque dancer - who was previously married to goth rocker Marilyn Manson - is incredibly proud of her vintage-inspired Los Angeles home and was relieved to find current boyfriend Louis-Marie de Castelbajac appreciated the colourful way she has decorated her abode.

She said: "My worst nightmare was that I'd fall in love with a man who likes white walls and modern furniture."

The brunette beauty also admitted she has been experimenting with new culinary creations in order to impress her French partner.

She said: I make a terrific coq au vin to impress my boyfriend."

Explaining her tastes in interior design, Dita admitted she always buys things she knows her grandmother would appreciate.

She added in an interview with Britain's InStyle magazine: "I have a lot of Franz porcelain teapots, teacups and serving dishes and I love antique silver - I collect the flatware pattern Love Diarmed, a sexy design from the 19th century.

"The rule of shopping for me is, if your grandmother would like it, I would like it."
